It's never been done before - and that always gets attention. The University of Michigan Health System will be included in the first-of-its-kind index that'll rate hospitals for standards of care of gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender Americans.
"The UMHS Pride Network (the Transgender, Bisexual, Lesbian and Gay
Employee Resource and Patient Advocacy group) is proud of its
partnership with the Health System in achieving these ratings in the
Healthcare Equality Index," said Kimber Converso, a cardiac sonographer
and researcher at the University of Michigan Congenital Heart Center
and chair of the Pride Network.
"We look forward to continued improvements in both the provision of
quality medical care to the transgender, bisexual, lesbian and gay
communities, and creating an inclusive and supportive work
environment," Converso said on behalf of the Pride Network Executive
